The 3rd F2F meeting of the I-MECH consortium took place on 12-14 of November 2018 in Madrid, hosted by GMV A&D. The agenda consisted of plenary meetings to report the progress at work package (WP) level and multiple parallel sessions to align on building block (BB) details. A fruitful discussion took place between the meeting participants and decisions were made regarding the ongoing and near future activities.

A high performance servo amplifier is one of the building blocks that is being developed within the frame of I-MECH project. The servo amplifier will be ultra-compact, super smart and high-powered. Thanks to its small size and rugged design it can be mounted virtually anywhere: collaborative robot joints, wearable robots, unmanned ground or aerial vehicles as well as inside motors. The amplifier can operate as an intelligent BLDC motor controller as well as a high performance current amplifier....

The SPS show is the most important event on the calendar regarding robotics and control electronics. It takes place in Nürmberg and gathers 1630 exhibitors, with 65700 professionals attending the event. I-MECH partners INGENIA & GEFRAN presented I-MECH leaflets with a project summary and information about the building blocks and pilots being developed to event attendants. INGENIA also presented prototypes of servo/current amplifiers developed in the context of the I-MECH project.

ICSC18 was the seventh edition of the International Conference on Systems and Control, technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society. It has been held at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, Spain. About 100 participants had the opportunity to share together the latest developments and new trends in systems and control. Both theoretical and applied papers were presented. Marco Giacomelli, from I-MECH partner University of Brescia, presented the paper “MPC-PID Control of...

I-MECH partner INL presented the poster "A patterning strategy for large area arrays of high density nanostructures”, by Carlos Calaza and Elisabete Fernandes, at NanoIL 2018. A production-worthy method to implement high density arrays of sub-micron nanostructures at a wafer scale is proposed. It is based on a co-optimization of the layout design, the e-beam lithography exposure and the intermediate SiO2 hard mask used for the final silicon etch process. The great complexity of the e-beam...

The first yearly review of I-MECH was concluded successfully on the 6th of September 2018. During this day, the project results in individual workpackages were presented in very friendly atmosphere to technical reviewers and EC members. All the planned milestones, results and deliverables have been reached successfully. Hence the project paradigms does not need to be changed and we may continue in our inspiring development. Congratulations to the whole team!

On the 12th and 13th of June 2018, the I-MECH partners gathered for their second face-to-face meeting at the Holst Centre on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This meeting, hosted by Sioux-CCM, took place after about a year of progress in the I-MECH project. The major focus of this meeting was to present and discuss the I-MECH methodology: a way of working and architecture which will allow a modular I-MECH motion control platform to be assembled from building blocks. Workshops...
